West Sacramento man gets 830 years to life for sex abuse

West Sacramento man gets 830 years to life for sex abuse

District Attorney Jeff Reisig announced Monday that Yolo County Superior Court Judge Stephen Mock sentenced 44-year-old Bennie Dale Moses of West Sacramento to 830 years to life in state prison.

On March 10, 2011, a Yolo County jury convicted Moses of 62 counts of sex and oral copulation with a child. Moses had been forcing the girl to have sex with him beginning in 2000, when she was 12 years old. The sexual abuse continued until July 11, 2009 when the she confided in a friend that Moses had been having sex with her for nine years. That friend called 9-1-1. The investigation revealed that when Moses was a teenager he had also forced a number of elementary school girls to have sex with him.

At a court trial held in March, Mock ruled that Moses had previously been convicted of 12 separate "strike" offenses.

Capitol Bowl Bride of 1983

 Capitol Bowl Bride of 1983

James Marshall graduate, Lynda Herren Rogers, married the late Gary Lee Rogers on August 27, 1983.  At that time, Gary had part ownership in what was then El Rancho Bowl, a major entertainment hub on the west side of the river.  Now a West Sacramento Landmark, the renamed Capitol Bowl is undergoing an exciting renovation facelift to complement the new Civic Center, City College and City Hall.  The Rogers unique wedding took place inside the bowling alley, a strike in their favor, and the beautiful bride walked down the 10th lane.  Needless to say, their 200 guests had a ball.  After hearing about the "destruction party" on April 22nd, benefiting the Special Olympics of Northern California, Lynda stopped by News10 to reminisce with lifelong friend, yours truly, who attended the nuptials and caught the bouquet...which doesn't work by the way.
